We were very happy with the hotel and the staff great view from the roof of the Parthenon. Great breakfast and helpful staff Only complaint was the bed- two singles pushed together rather than full size bed.

Awesome Athens

Would recommend Fri, Jan 9, 2015
The location was great. We visit Greece every year and always stay a few days in Athens. The pool had great view and plenty of seating was available. It was a short walk to shopping and to the sites. The staff was great. I can't see myself staying any place else.

Electra Palace Hotel

Would recommend Sat, Dec 3, 2011
This is a beautiful hotel with a luxurious feel to it. It has an incredible rooftop view of the parthenon. the staff was very attentive polite and knowledgeable. We had booked an additional tour and the man who checked us in knew that it was not going to run the day we had booked (we went in the off season) and took care of our arrangements so that we could go on the only day of the week the day-cruise was going. The location for walking to the main attractions of Athens (acropolis, hadrians library, agora, zeus's temple, kerameikos), souveneirs and a plethora of cafes couldn't get any better. You are right in the heart of Athens tourist culture. The downside is that you will hear a lot of road noise, get a lot of lights from the street, and smell a lot of exhaust, even when you keep you balcony door closed. The rooms were clean and included the standard toiletries and a haidrdryer. If coming from the US you will need a converter for other appliances. There are two restaurants, and the downstairs restaurant has a wonderful buffet breakfast. The upstairs restaurant is not typical of the cafe fare, but it is very delicious, although more expensive.

Money saver

Try and get as many small euros as possbile. We did encounter trouble trying to make change. The only form of one euro is a coin, and many shops and cafes seemed to have some trouble with having the one and two euro coins.

Great LOCATION but small standard rooms

Would recommend Sun, Jul 24, 2011
When we arrived, I was SHOCKED at the small size of the standard room! :( It was just me and a kid (12) and we had two suitcases, 2 backpacks and a carry-on suitcase and it could all barely fit into the room! The bathroom is even smaller. You have practically NO counter space and the tub/shower has a half door so you have to maneuver well to not get water outside of the tub! :( The hotel breakfast is really nice and a great deal...you want to start your day with a good meal to make it through a day of sightseeing in Athens. The workers at the hotel are business like and stiff but are kind. If you stay at hotel, and can afford it, get a room LARGER than standard...especially if it is 2 or more people.

Money saver

Don't buy trinkets at the Parthenon. Get them in Plaka.

Sorry we only stayed one night

Would recommend Tue, Jul 12, 2011
The restaurant was fabulous, the pool was gorgeous, the service spectacular. Well worth it's price for location alone, the other desirables are all there too.

Shopping hint

a block out the hotel door and to the right is the Plaka, Athens's shopping district. Explore and bring lots of Euros!! HAGGLE!! You will pay half price if you ask.
